We’re just getting over how amazing Pixar’s Inside Out was, and we’re as keen as ever to see The Good Dinosaur, as if that wasn’t enough, the Finding Dory trailer just landed! This trailer is truly a teaser, since it discloses nothing we didn’t know before, but simply ‘wets’ our appetite for what is to come.
Let’s face it, when Finding Dory is released next July, it will have been 13 years since the release of Finding Nemo, that is one substantial gap. So the question mark is how will the film pick up? Will it assume that no time has elapsed? Are fish years different to human years? Pixar surprised with Toy Story 3 and how it dealt with the passing of time, will they be able to pull it off again?
This teaser puts Dory at the centre of the stage, it makes it clear that this film will be about her, but at the same time we have Nemo and his dad coming along for the ocean adventure. We’ve had schools of fish before, sharks before, seagulls and a host of other natural entities. What, NEW, can Pixar bring to the table? Perhaps they will go harder on the environmental issues this time? Will there be room for deep emotion, as much as Finding Nemo had? Regardless, this is exciting, but for now we can only do one thing, and that is to ‘just keep swimming’. Beach anyone?
